DETAILS WITH HISTORY
Reproductions to scale
As manufacturers, we make custom pieces on demand for corporate gifts or quality souvenirs, following the original artisanal manufacturing processes.
FLOR DE BARCELONA
The origin of the “Flor de Barcelona” tile is the pavement of the lobby of the Casa Ametller (1900), on Passeig de Gràcia avenue, in Barcelona. In 1970, Barcelona City Council started using it in the sidewalks pavements of Barcelona.
Currently, millions of “Flors” (flowers) cover the city sidewalks. In 2015, our workshop was commissioned to produce the reproductions by the company Reqrea Qualitat, who owns the rights to sell them.
In 2007, on the occasion of the recovery of the Kursaal Theater in Manresa, Mosaics Marti was commissioned to produce the tiles with the six-point star tile of the courtyard. The tiles were made by using the same mold used to produce them during the construction of the theater, opened in 1927.
This tile is produced with a mold that reproduces the original piece on a 1:2.2 scale with the same artisanal process followed 100 years ago. The first edition was made in 2017, on the occasion of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the recovery of the theater.
Tile designed in 2017 in conjunction with Althaia (Manresa University welfare network), as an exclusive gift for all professionals who retire, in recognition of their careers and bond to the Institution.
PETIT & CLÀSSIC GAUDÍ
Antoni Gaudí’s most emblematic pavement has been reconverted into a small, artisanal, exclusive and unique gift. Having a Petit or a Clàssic Gaudí is like owning an original piece of Barcelona Modernism.
Origin and originality go hand in hand in this joint project with Eva Gutenberg, a graphic communication studio with a team passionate about Modernism and small details. This collaboration allows us to offer these reproductions as a personalized gift for companies and institutions at petitgaudi.com.
